Inspired by a Chinese bottle gifted to me in child, each piece I make assumes its own identity with the application of transferred decoration. Collected imagery and text tell stories from lives past and present centring around the human condition from significant to trivial. Through tearing and cutting the storytelling becomes abstracted. Visible fragments hint at the narrative creating new meanings.
Borrowing from historic ceramic tradition on closer inspection my process gives each piece a contemporary twist. The eclectic shapes and surfaces stand alone, or work in harmony when grouped, capturing the gaze and allowing the viewer their own interpretation.
